New Home for New Sofa

OK, honestly, this blog is not about my sofa although it seems to be.
Right now, this is a slow going blog.
We're in the middle of trying to find our next home, so we're in transition.
We're renting a small apartment, it's been four weeks now, and waiting to hear back if we have the house we put an offer on.
Short Sales are a nightmare, so if you're considering
going that route, you better not be in a hurry
for a home because you'll be waiting
a long time!
So, while we wait we are still house hunting and seeing if
maybe, just maybe, there's another house out there
that suits us just fine.
So, right now, we're trying to make our temporary
living arrangements
So, as you know, we sold our sofa and purchased a new one,
and it arrived after two weeks of living here

(I have a cover on the seats, we have cats so need to protect the furniture)
I love it!
It's from the Broyhill collection called "Cora", a little more than
what we wanted to spend but we made money off the sell
of our other sofa so that was a great help.
The pictures above the sofa

I found them at Marshall's (I love that store, a little too much) and the colors match our sofa perfectly.
So, when we finally move into our house, we'll need to purchase
a chair or chairs to go with our sofa.
I look forward to decorating our next house, all in
French Country,
hence, this blog!

Finally, we received our sofa and this is the exact finished product. I haven't had a chance to take a picture of it in its setting
but I had it saved on my desktop when I was playing with the companies website, and TaDa here it is.
It is the exact look of it.
It's over eight feet long and we love the bun espresso color feet.
We were suppose to get an accent pillow of a dark pumpkin color but it's on back order so they sent us an extra striped pillow.
It is so comfortable and pretty.
We have moved from our home of 11 years, we closed on our old home last Monday, a week ago today, and now we're
living in MD in a small one bedroom apartment in a beautiful area, for now, until we find a permanent home, which we hope will be soon.
Then I can post lots of pictures of our new home in my favorite
French Country Style.
